|~ BTD6 description|
Laser Blasts returns as the 1st upgrade of Path 1 for the Super Monkey in BTD6. Just like the old Laser Vision upgrade from earlier games and BTD5's Laser Blasts, Laser Blasts makes the Super Monkey shoot lasers instead of darts, but neither this upgrade nor its successor Plasma Blasts upgrade can pop Purple Bloons without special upgrades. Pierce of each laser is increased by +1, from 1 to 2. As with earlier versions, this upgrade allows popping of Frozen Bloons but still not Lead Bloons, because its projectile changes from the sharp type to the energy type.
It costs $2,125 on Easy, $2,500 on Medium, $2,700 on Hard, and $3,000 on Impoppable.
Description[edit | edit source]
Laser Blasts adds a pair of laser goggles, covering the whole of Super Monkey's eyes. The Super Monkey appears somewhat angry.
Strategy[edit | edit source]
Summary[edit | edit source]
Laser Blasts increases pierce of the Super Monkey by a considerable amount, and it allows the Super Monkey to pop Frozen Bloons. However, the cost-efficiency of Epic Range at providing both range and pierce often renders the lone Laser Blasts upgrade less useful, with the only exception being if planning to further upgrade to Plasma Blasts or wanting to add a crosspath with Knockback.
Tips[edit | edit source]
- Extra pierce is good for the Super Monkey, but do not stop at Laser Blasts. Go for Plasma Blasts as soon as possible, though Laser Blasts is a rather decent stepping stone towards that upgrade.
- If there are Purples, be cautious about it. Add anti-Purple support like Bloonjitsu or Alchemists.
Version History[edit | edit source]
- Laser Blasts price reduced ($2,700 -> $2,500)

Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Like BTD5, the Laser Blasts upgrade costs the same as the base tower. This is not the case in BTD4.
